Drug, Smoking & Alcohol De-Addiction Treatments
Addiction to alcohol or tobacco is a stage where the person becomes physically and emotionally addicted to alcohol or tobacco. Ayurvedic principles of treatment and Ayurvedic therapies used to treat addiction to alcohol and tobacco are similar; we therefore studied both dependencies at Arogyadham. Addiction to drugs is not covered here, since this condition requires hospitalization and treatment using dissimilar therapies.
Some people may have an alcohol addiction serious enough to warrant hospitalization, where they can be treated for alcohol poisoning or serious withdrawal problems such as seizures. This article is limited to the herbal Ayurvedic treatment for those patients who cannot be managed on an outpatient basis, however, who still need to be under the supervision of a local physician to treat withdrawal symptoms and other medical conditions that may occur. We also offer emergency procedures for drug addiction and overdose issues for addicts. You may get in touch with our expert doctors anytime.
Alcohol dependence is known in Ayurveda as “Madatyaya.” There are different approaches for treating patients with addiction. Some use the “like cures like” approach, and requires the administration of medicated beverages containing small quantities of alcohol and medicinal cigarettes to smoke. Our expert team of researchers use different drugs depending on the origin of addiction. People addicted to tobacco because of dental problems are encouraged to use the drug-based creams and tooth powder plants.
Several herbal combinations are available, which, if used wisely, not only reduce the urge to smoke, but also control symptoms of withdrawal, increase appetite and create a feeling of well-being. Depending on the severity of the addiction, the treatment time at Arogyadham varies from 1 to 6 months. Some patients may require several short-term courses of therapy.
At Arogyadham center, we use different treatments that adapt to the patient’s body, depending on their immune system and body functions. We might use Panchakarma or other massage-based ayurvedic procedures to remove toxins from the body, or exercise yoga to get rid of negative thoughts, or use our patented zero side-effects herbs to recover from addiction and withdrawal symptoms.
